Hi, I wonder if anyone could advise me on the pros and cons of Logic Pro X as recording software?<br /> <br /> I’ve previously used Cubase VST/ SX for years (which I liked) and currently have Sonar and Audacity on my PC, and Garageband, Auria, and Cubasis on my iPad, but I’ve never been 100% happy with any of them.<br /> <br /> In recording terms I’m more or less a “one man band”, in that I will likely be recording all of the tracks individually myself at home. I do play in a couple of bands, but can’t envision ever wanting to record in a “band” context. Material is predominantly Country Rock/ Southern Rock/ Classic Rock/ Indie Rock.<br /> <br /> The two things that are really important to me are:-<br /> <br /> I need to be able to create pro quality drum tracks<br /> <br /> I need pitch correction software.<br /> <br /> So….. I was considering making a quantum leap, and buying a Mac/ MacBook with Logic Pro X. I’ve never owned a Mac, or used Logic, so I was wondering…….<br /> <br /> Is it really the most popular DAW software now, as often stated?<br /> <br /> Is Logic Pro X significantly better than Logic Pro 9?<br /> <br /> Any other advice/ comments<br /> <br /> Thanks. <br />

Logic Pro is a DAW that you will find in many professional recording studios. The lay out is very similar to GarageBand. I guess you could say it's like GarageBand on steroids. <br /> <br /> Is it the most popular DAW? I'm not sure about that claim, but plenty of people use it.

I can't say I've ever seen a studio tout having Logic.<br /> <br /> They usually babble on about Pro Tools if they mention what DAW they're using at all.<br /> <br /> I use neither.

Download the Samplitude Pro X 2 demo.<br /> <br /> Tried Pro Tools, Cubase, and Sonar.<br /> <br /> Samp smokes all of them.

I use ProTools 11. Mainly because that's the platform the college I'm attending uses and I was able to purchase the student version for a little less than 1/2 the cost. I'm not a big fan of the iLok dongle and it plugging up a USB slot, but I guess it helps the pirating issue.<br /> <br /> I like the looks of Samplitude Roly.

I do the same type of recording you are planning. I used Guitar Band on my iMac, but it does have limitations. I don't like the 'built-in' drum patches (aimed at kids). <br /> <br /> I'm using Logic Express 8. I don't know what more the full version has to offer, but Express has more than enough capability for me. I use EZDrummer for creating drum tracks. There is some pitch correction for vocals as well. <br /> <br /> It has a learning curve, for sure, but I've been at it long enough to have gotten some good results. Bought the package used on Ebay.<br />

Thanks everyone. <br /> <br /> Greg, I'm also looking at buying used from eBay. I think it's pretty amazing that Logic Pro X retails for £150 now. Pre Apple, Logic used to be £499.
